But he’s a huge help in actually getting to the playoffs and that’s what the Mavs need more than anything. Worry about playoff matchups once we actually get there, not before... Also, Carlisle is a lot better of a coach than D’antoni so take that into account as well
I don't know, man. For Powell, for instance, we know he can put the ball on the floor, finish with elite efficiency at the rim and shoot an occasional three. Definitely would rather take/retain him over Capela.
I’d rather have Capela, but only because he’s younger and can actually start for us. Powell is good, but I think this is his ceiling... Not sure Capela has reached his
The thing with Capela is he doesnt have a go-to move. He doesnt post up, he doesnt shoot jumpers, he's not so good with his free throws, and he doesnt shoot 3 pointers to stretch the floor too. Since he is 25, maybe Carlisle can teach him some moves but that's that.
I think Capela is the incentive for any team willing to take on Chris Paul right now. In which case, I'd have to say no. There is a reason why Morey chose to call Donnie first among all the other teams even if we are division rivals. And it's because he thinks Donnie is a sucker who he can trick into accepting such a deal. Luckily for us he said no. Now they are peddling Capela to Ainge and the Celtics to send him East.
